A number of city centre roads are to close for Run Norwich next month, with drivers warned their cars will be removed if they are parked on affected streets.

The event takes place on Sunday, July 17, and will see those living in King Street and Riverside Road forced to move their parked cars ahead of the race, with most main roads around the city centre closed.

And Run Norwich is still planning for runners to race down St Stephen's Street despite ongoing roadworks, which are planned to last until July 31.
